SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas revealed a curious case of blissful ignorance Tuesday at Shinnecock Hills.

Both learned of the U.S. Golf Association changing its 18-hole playoff to determine ties. In the event of a tie, the U.S. Open will now be a two-hole aggregate playoff.

The decision was announced in February.

"It's still 18 holes, right?" Spieth asked when questioned. "I didn't even know."

Spieth suggested he had looked at Monday's weather forecast with the old 18-hole format in mind.

  Ariya Jutanugarn wins U.S. Women’s Open in playoff after blowing 7-shot lead Ariya Jutanugarn defeated Hyo Joo Kim in a playoff to win the U.S. Women's Open at Shoal Creek.Jutanugarn and Kim were even after two holes and moved on to sudden death, where Jutanugarn finally sealed the win with an up and down for par in the fourth playoff hole at No. 18.

Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas still remember the first time they went against each other down the stretch Tied for the lead with five holes to play , Thomas birdied the 15th hole and made a clutch Two things Thomas learned were patience and learning to score when he wasn’t hitting it his best.

"So shows you what I know," he said.

Hours later, Thomas visited the media center and mentioned some lunch-time discussion about Spieth's admission.

"I saw about three people say he didn't know. I'm like well, I'm glad I read this because I didn't know either," Thomas said.

So there you have it. Two of the game's more detail-driven players apparently so focused on their game that they didn't know about a historic change in policy.

"I mean, if I have a chance to win the U.S. Open, I don't care if it's a two-hole playoff or a 72-hole tournament," Thomas said. "I'll take a playoff right now."

Just be ready to head to the 17th tee Sunday.

  Shinnecock Hills already making Jordan Spieth, others look like chumps And it’s likely going to get harder later. It has dangerously fast, often narrow fairways surrounded by tall fescue grass on all sides, and the run of its greens punishes players who don’t hit a precise landing area and make their shots stick. The course is also subject to severe, sometimes twisting Hamptons winds, and it’s long as hell: 7,448 yards for a course that only works out to a par-70 track.
